  2. I like both the look of this image and the feeling coming from it. I especially like it in mono. Shame about the pile of sugar in the foreground.

    Had this been me, Shaun - and I am just a beginner at this, too - I would have altered the aperture to blur out the background a bit more. Still indicate that they are on a busy lane, but just throw more focus on these two friends.

    Like the look of the chap on the left!!

  3. Shaun, have a look at this portrait that Cara has just posted on our Strangers blog http://one-hundred-strangers.blogspot.com/2009/06/cara-021-jamie.html

  4. Julie, agree about the blur in the background. If you look carefully though the one on the right is already blurred... the guy in the background in the dark bothers me, but I was thinking I might be overly critical, obviously not :). This shot happened quite quickly though since we were so close to them - literally at the table next... I have another photograph where they were looking directly into the camera... it was difficult not to impose too much on the conversation.... get what you can... your point is definitely valid though! PS: For this photography I usually use a priority mode more than anything and this was on shutter....!

  7. What are they talking about? The guy on the left seems serious while the guy on the right has a bit of a "sneer," maybe a mocking look like he doesn't really agree with his friend?

    They both could use a good brushing!

  8. I think so too Jacob.... I imagine them to be old friends and they probably tease once in awhile... one on the left is the more serious, the one on the right is the joker!
